    There may or may not be jail time. The judges have a fair bit of discretion which they use depending on the circumstances of the defendant and the judge.

    Best to see the on duty or public lawyer and please guilty and state all the genuine reasons that jail time can ruin his life. Remorse often counts for a lot in first time cases.

    This raises many questions:

    The new C Jessica returned to Hong Kong. She went to the police station with his lawyer. She was model drop by 600 yuan bail.
    What was the old C Jessica's involvement?

    Was the layer transsexual?

    What's a model drop?

    Can't she/he/it not use HK$

    @jrkob - what do you think of this?

    Under section 109A(1) of the Criminal Procedure Ordinance, no offender aged between 16 and 20 can be sentenced to imprisonment unless no other method of dealing with the person is found to be appropriate. However, section 109A(1) does not apply to certain offences known as "excepted offences", which are set out in Schedule 3 of the Criminal Procedure Ordinance. These excepted offences include manslaughter, robbery, indecent assault and other serious crimes.
    (1) No court shall sentence a person of or over 16 and under 21 years of age to imprisonment unless the court is of opinion that no other method of dealing with such person is appropriate; and for the purpose of determining whether any other method of dealing with any such person is appropriate the court shall obtain and consider information about the circumstances, and shall take into account any information before the court which is relevant to the character of such person and his physical and mental condition.(1A) This section shall not apply to a person who has been convicted of any offence which is declared to be an excepted offence by Schedule 3. (Added 5 of 1971 s. 10A. Amended 58 of 1994 s. 4)
    (2) In this section court (法庭) includes the District Court and a magistrate. (Amended 35 of 1976 s. 11)

    In a CSO, you will clean up dog sh*t in the street.
    Which is not a bad thing. Atleast it allows you to continue with your life, even though you may need some extra deodorant!

    The training center sounds like triad breeding grounds....

    What a fall of grace...
    Atleast he is not getting buggered in jail... (which is what I've heard happens to those not paying triad protection money!).
